    I did the run.bat and when it started here's what it said

    C:\Users\Nick\Desktop\bukkit>java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit-1.6.4-R1.0.jar -o t
    16:13:41 [INFO] Starting minecraft server version 1.6.4

    16:13:42 [WARNING] The exception was: java.net.BindException: Address already in
    use: JVM_Bind
    16:13:42 [WARNING] Perhaps a server is already running on that port?

    I don't have a server running right now.
    Can anybody help?!

    Looks like your computer / internet is using port 25565. Go into server.properties and change the 25565 to a lower number. Then try. :)

    Also others can't connect to you unless you port forward (http://portforward.com)

    I'm guessing he still has an instance of bukkit/MC running. Something is listening on that port, and nothing should be.

    Try opening task manager and look for a java process running MC and kill it. Or just reboot.

    I agree Change the port in the sever.properties or just restart your computer.
